  • Information reasonably sufficient to permit THR or its service provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
  • A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;

  • Forward the written notification to such alleged infringer (“Member”);
  • Take reasonable steps to promptly notify the Member that it has removed or disabled access to the material.

A Counter Notification will be effective if in writing, provided to the Designated Agent, and including substantially the following:

  • A physical or electronic signature of the Member;
  • Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;

  • The Member’s name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the Member consents to jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located or, if the Member’s address is out of the United States, for any judicial district in which THR may be found, and that the Member will accept service of process from the person who provided notification or the agent of such person.

Upon receipt of a Counter Notification containing the information outlined above, THR will:

  • Promptly provide the complaining party with a copy of the Counter Notification;
  • Inform the complaining party that it will replace the removed material within ten (10) to fourteen (14) business days following the receipt of the Counter Notification, provided THR’s Designated Agent has not received notice from the complaining party that an action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the Member from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on THR’s network or system.
